40 protesters removed from Kerem Shalom Crossing for trying to prevent aid reaching Gaza

Some 40 protesters have been removed from the Kerem Shalom Crossing after setting up tents to block the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza, Ynet reports.

The protesters were removed from the area without the use of force by the police, the report states, adding that police and IDF troops remain stationed at the crossing to prevent their return to the closed military area.

In recent weeks, groups of right-wing protesters have blocked the crossing in an attempt to prevent humanitarian aid from reaching Gaza’s civilian population while some 136 Israelis remain in Hamas captivity.
